Common Commands

With Media Center, you can use “triple‐tap” on your remote control to enter letters using the number buttons, for example when searching for a TV or music title. Amulet allows you spell out words by voice, which is often a more convenient way to enter text.

Use the Type In command to enter a few letters immediately. Alternatively, use Start Typing to switch into typing mode, and you can then speak letters for as long as you wish, until you say Stop Typing.

Browse To is an alternative form of Type In that is convenient when viewing screens with long lists, where typing the first few letters of an entry’s name jumps to that entry in the list.

Typing Mode

START TYPING … {LETTERS} … STOP TYPING

TYPE IN {LETTERS}
BROWSE TO {LETTERS}

Use the commands to “type” individual letters or numbers on the keyboard. Recognized letter names are shown in the table below. You can speak most letters by just saying the name of the letter. If you have difficulty with some letters, you can also use the phonetic alphabet (e.g. Alpha for ‘A’, Bravo for ‘B’).

EXAMPLES
TYPE IN H‐O‐U‐S‐E
BROWSE TO M‐A‐D
TYPE IN TANGO OSCAR NOVEMBER YANKEE

Common Commands

These Amulet commands are often useful for testing, since they make it easy to check that your Amulet system is working correctly, or to restore Media Center to a known good state.

Finding out the time

WHAT TIME IS IT?
WHAT’S THE TIME?
WHAT IS THE TIME?

Speaks the current system time.

This is a useful command to check that Amulet is listening and responding to commands correctly.

You can use it at any time without interrupting other activities you may be carrying out.

Checking the Audio Quality

REPEAT BACK {SENTENCE}

Repeats back what you said, to allow you to check the quality of your audio connection. This is a good way to make sure Amulet can hear you clearly.

{SENTENCE}

This can be any phrase you like; Amulet will repeat it verbatim without attempting to make sense of it.

EXAMPLES
REPEAT BACK AMULET CAN YOU HEAR ME?

Reset the Media Center Display

SET MEDIA CENTER FULL SCREEN
MAXIMIZE MEDIA CENTER
MAXIMIZE (MCE / AMULET)

These commands all restore the Media Center display to full screen if it was previously running in a desktop window.
